OUTLINE OF INSTRUCTION
Lesson Topic 1.11:
Electronic classroom presentation with slides
Partially supported by this lesson topic:
Upon completion of this unit of instruction the student
naval aviator will demonstrate knowledge of basic
aerodynamic factors that affect airplane performance.
Completely supported by this lesson topic:
Describe how the forces acting on an airplane produce
a level coordinated turn.
Define load factor.
Describe the relationship between load factor and
angle of bank for level flight.
State the effect of maneuvering on stall speed.
Define load, strength, static strength, static
failure, fatigue strength, fatigue failure, service
life, creep, limit load factor, elastic limit,
overstress/over-G, and ultimate load factor.
State the relationship between the elastic limit and
the limit load factor.
Describe and identify the parts of the V-n/V-g
diagram, including the major axes, limit load factor,
ultimate load factor, maneuvering speed/cornering
velocity, redline airspeed, accelerated stall lines,
and the safe flight envelope.
List and describe the phenomena that are used to
determine redline airspeed.
State the limit load factors, maneuvering speed, and
redline airspeed for the T-34C and T-37B.
Describe the effects of weight, altitude, and
configuration on the safe flight envelope.
Define asymmetric loading and state the limitations.
